EOS/ESD Association to host ESD Compliance Verification training


ROME — EOS/ESD Association, Inc. will host live training for the ESD Compliance Verification Technical Certification to the TR53 Program in November.

The training will take place on Nov. 2-4 at EOS/ESD Association, 212 W. Court St., with instruction on the first two days and an exam on the last day. Matt Jane from Tesla and John Kinnear from IBM are the instructors.

EOS/ESD Association, Inc. established the ESD Compliance Verification Technical Certification, which is based on the ESDA’s technical report, ESD-TR53 Compliance Verification of ESD Protective Equipment and Materials. This technical report supports and maintains static control programs designed around the ANSI/ESD S20.20 standard for the development of an Electrostatic Discharge Control Program for the protection of electrical and electronic parts, assemblies, and equipment, as well as the European technically equivalent standard IEC 61340-5-1.

“We are a 40-year-old local organization with our headquarters in Rome,” said EOS/ESD Association, Inc. Executive Director Lisa Pimpinella. “Much of our customer base has grown to the national and global levels. While we are working with local organizations, we would like to increase our awareness to the local community which is expanding its technology base.”

The EOS/ESD Association, Inc. is a non-profit organization dedicated to advancing the theory and practice of electrostatic discharge (ESD) avoidance. Controlling ESD is prudent and strategic for companies seeking to gain competitive advantage in major markets. Pimpinella also said they would provide the certification to local companies in Central New York and the Mohawk Valley at a group rate/discount.

EOS/ESD Association, Inc. was founded in Rome in 1982, has grown more than 1,400 members and volunteers, and 30-plus countries, including the U.S. and Canada. Initially focusing on ESD on electronic components, the association has expanded its reach to include areas such as textiles, plastics, microchips, web processing, cleanrooms, explosives, and graphic arts.

Due to a continually changing environment, the association is chartered to expand ESD awareness through standards, development, education programs, local chapters, publications, tutorials, certifications and symposia. It is the only organization accredited by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) to write and produce standards on electrostatics.
